I have 9 old, wrinkly friends, who are retired or semi-retired. Five of them all used to work together and the other four are husbands. They didn't want to lose touch when they retired so they decided to meet and have lunch or dinner when it was their birthdays. However, they got disenchanted with buying a present every time, and decided instead to give a Birthday Bear (thats me.) I get passed from one birthday person to the next each time they meet. The fun part is, that I get to be dressed differently each time, usually to reflect some aspect of the recipient's personality or life.
PS: Two of my wrinklies, Chris and Bob, have gone on a working holiday tour around Australia so they don't celebrate with us very often.

We all had to wait for Diane to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge and come home so that we could celebrate her birthday. Anyway I didn't mind waiting because I had fun in Mary's garden and my greenhouse. She's a good cook too.

Anyway, Diane chose to have her belated birthday lunch at Baan Thai Restaurant, where the food is delicious, the service good and it isn't expensive. Now Diane is a tutor for the Logan U3A Camera Club and Ann thought that I might like to go along to the club. So she dressed me in casual clothes for snapping photos. George made me a tripod and a mini harbour bridge for me to photograph. I might even climb over it.

 Diane was happy to see that had the right equipment to go along to the camera club with her.

 Back at Diane's house I had fun snapping pictures with my three cameras. Ann even gave me a little bird that sings, to practice photographing. She also bought me some new shoes.

 Don't you love the hat that Ann found for me. It has the same words on it as the name of Diane's blog.
